  • Fitzwilliam Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the well being of all of its pupils. Each pupil’s welfare is of paramount importance. We recognise that some children may be especially vulnerable to abuse. We recognise that children who are abused or neglected may find it difficult to develop a sense of self worth and to view the world in a positive way. Whilst at school, their behaviour may be challenging. We recognise that some children who have experienced abuse may harm others. We will always take a considered and sensitive approach in order that we can support all of our pupils.

Fitzwilliam Primary is proud to work with West Yorkshire Police and Wakefield Council as an Operation Encompass School. Please click on link for more information.


Prevent Strategy

As part of Fitzwilliam Primary Schools commitment to safeguarding and child protection we support the government’s Prevent Strategy, and take guidance to help to build resilience to extremism. Please see our Prevent Policy under the Parents tab in the 'Policies' section of this web site or click on this Prevent Policy link: PREVENT POLICY

What is the Prevent Strategy?

The Prevent strategy is a government strategy designed to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorist or extremist causes.  Many of the things we already do in school to help children become positive, happy members of society also contribute to the Prevent strategy. These include:

Exploring other cultures and religions and promoting diversity

Promoting the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of pupils, as well as British values such as democracy

Developing critical thinking skills and a strong, positive self-identity 

Challenging prejudices and racist comments

We will also protect children from the risk of radicalisation, for example by using filters on the Internet to make sure they can’t access extremist and terrorist material, or by vetting visitors who come into school to work with pupils. We build pupils’ resilience to radicalisation by promoting fundamental British Values.  Please see our British Values Statement in the 'Policies' section of this web site.

Online Safety

  • At Fitzwilliam Primary School we recognise the increasing risks in the digital world. We believe that computing is an important part of a childs education but we aslo need to ensure that children can use such technology in a way that keeps them safe. In order to ensure all children know how to use computing safely, school has developed a number of innitiatives including:- E-Safety days, workshops and assemblies led by PC Blunt our Safer Schools Officer and a computing curriculum which has e-safety running through it. Please see the links below for help with e-safety:
